PINK! That’s the first thing you’ll notice about these fruits that ripen early, and you’ll harvest them throughout the season from the greenhouse or the field. They’re fleshy, juicy, sweet, and very delicious. On the lush, tall and abundant plants, fruits grow in either round or heart shapes and weigh around 200 g. They can even reach up to 700 g if you feed them more, preferably throughout the season, ensuring that all fruits grow large.

MEDENO SRCE F1
If you appreciate extraordinary taste, this hybrid heart will become your favorite tomato.

For charm in both salads and gardens, grow this tall cherry beauty in rows with supports or on the ground without pruning sideshoots. When it blushes red in botanical ripeness, harvest whole clusters with 15 – 20 sweet, flavorful, and, with their high lycopene content, health-promoting fruits. Because they command a higher price than other tomatoes, you will earn more, as they grow in the same density as any other tomato – maximum 2.5 plants per m².

Offer it to the market at the end of the summer and it will attract customers with its recognizable taste – once they’ve tried it, they will keep returning for this uniquely regal flavor.
